10 reasons Why Gothenburg is Sweden´s adventure city #1

2017-09-15 08:14 | 274 Visningar | Kommentera

I moved to Gothenburg 12 years ago with no knowledge about the adventure potential this area offers. During this time I have travelled to many places around the world for adventure photography work, but lately realized a lot of the good stuff is just around my corner! So, here are 10 reasons why there is no need to leave Gothenburg for adventures.


Hiking in Sandsjöbacka

Sandsjöbacka is a nature reserve just South of Gothenburg. As I am a lover of views I was really surprised when I the first time got up to this location. Try it in sunset, it is really nice!


Canoeing in Lärjeån

Lärjeån meanders through the Lärje valley just East of Gothenburg. And it feels like the Amazons with big hanging trees, the never lasting sound from birds and the brown flowing river. 


Climbing in Utby

The rocks of Utby a 20 minute bike ride from the centre of Gothenburg. They are big, made out of gneiss and offer 100’s of climbing routes. This place is also nice for sunset views.


Skiing on Ramberget

Ok, this is a strecher. But sometimes we do get snow in Gothenburg and with a good base Ramberget, just Northwest of the centre, is a good place for skiing. It is steep and lots of cliffs to jump 🙂


Caving in Hällesåker

Caving in the Börsås cave in Hällesåker about 20km South east of Gothenburg. Very unexpected to find a cave here but it is a blast. Push yourself through this tight cave and you will get a good laugh!


Hiking in Änggårdsbergen

Hiking among the big beech trees in Änggårdsbergen. This nature reserve is pretty much located in Gothenburg and offers everything from hiking to biking to just relaxing in wind shelters.


Biking in Delsjön

Or why not head to the beech trees of Delsjön with the bike. The Delsjö area are amazing for biking and you have trails for a week.  Views, lakes, hikes and bikes. Everything is here. And it is only a 15 minute walk from the centre of Gothenburg.


Freediving in Öckerö

According to adventures Annelie Pompe we have an amazing world beneath the surface on the West coast. I joined her and was struck by this beautiful world. It was so clorful and exciting and Öckerö is not far from the centre of Gothenburg.


Kayaking in the archipelago

Gothenburg offer endless of possibilities when it comes to kayaking. Pack the kayak for a weekend adventure with tent, food and good food is the strongest recommendation here 🙂

Göteborg – Sweden’s new ski paradise

Did anyone say you can’t ski in Göteborg? Well, we sure can! After a big 30 cm+ dump a few days ago, the industrial town of Göteborg turned into a new ski paradise. First I did some shooting at Skansen Kronan with Skistore employees Viktor Åsander and Jocke Croy, and later on that day I hooked up with Johan Engebratt for some powder skiing at Ramberget.

The day started good with some powder turns at Skansen Kronan.

And to get to Skansen Kronan you need to short ski tour, no lifts available in the centre of Göteborg.

By the afternoon it was time for Jocke Croy to do do some jibbing.

As the sun set it was time for evening skiing. No head torches needed, the city light gave us all the light we needed.

Our goal was of course powder skiing, and there was no problem finding it. Johan Engebratt doing a righty on the backside of Ramberget.

No we all wait for next dump.

It’s been ages since I updated my blog, lately time has become something of a luxury. Maybe it has something to do with my second kid that arrived in the beginning of March :)

Lots of fun stuff is going on, and I will write about it shortly. But I am though still blogging, so if you visit my insurance partner ERV Europeiska – there is monthly updates there!

Soon back online and I will write about the book project Det vilda Göteborg, about the new website of Snösäker, and lots more.


First time in Canada

2015-02-23 10:53 | 2807 Visningar | Kommentera

First time in Canada, and it really made an impact on me! Nice mountains and amazing tree skiing! We weren’t super lucky with the snow, not due to lack of snow but avalanche danger of 4 in the higher altitudes. We (the crew of Pure Canada) stayed in a lodge just outside Golden, close to the Kicking horse ski resort. I only spent three days in Canada, so I didn’t have time for lots of skiing. But I did ski in Kicking horse and in the area of the crow glacier. One day I will go back to Canada!

Hard not to enjoy when Canada looks like this!

Before Canada I did a short one day visit to ISPO and made a short talk in the Sätila stand. Sätila won a nice price for their new beanie made for active outdoor lifestyle. It is knitted with reflex yarn, an important safety feature when being active in darkness!

Met up with Petter when I came home from Canada. Captured a few portraits for an upcoming feature at Freeride.se. We did the shooting just outside CLWR headcourter, and I took a look at their products – some really cool stuff.

"Do something fun", I told Petter. "This always works", he said. Hehe!

Last job was in Bromma, Stockholm where I produced some new images for Mornington hotel. I was happy to see the hottest elevator ever!

December and January – a summary

2015-01-16 10:55 | 3209 Visningar | Kommentera

Oj, oj, whats been going on since last time I wrote a blog post? A lot! I did a winter campaign for Subaru in November. In December I went to Moscow for an exhibition I was part of, I signed a book contract, got a back problem (not yet 100% solved), and skied powder in Engelberg. I recently came back from the Alps, shooting things for Åka Skidor and Fri Flyt. It was a bit of a hassle because of my back, but my good ski buddies took good care of me :) My next trip is not planned until end of January, but I still have tons of things to do in Göteborg. Mainly doing adventures in and around Göteborg for the book project but also some planning together with Moderkskeppet’s Anders Jensen for our “soon to be released” photo/image editing-trip to Chamonix in cooperation wit Zoomresor. So a lot of thing you don’t want to miss :)
